(I named it D*, cause it's actually not D, but Dmaj7sus2)

Intro:
A    D*   F#m E D* (2x)
 
        F#m                             C#m       
Well, I wonder which song they're gonna play when we go.
            F#m                                        D*
I hope it's something quiet and minor and peaceful and slow.
        F#m                                C#m
When we float out into the ether, into the Everlasting Arms,
          F#m                           D*
I hope we don't hear Marley's chains we forged in life.
 
           F#            D5              A          E   
 'Cause the chains I been hearing now for most of my life,
           F#            D5              A          E   
	The chains I been hearing now for most of my life.

                 A                           D*
Did you hear the '59 Sound coming through on grandmother's radio?
                 F#m             E                 D*
Did you hear the rattling chains   in the hospital walls?
                 A                                  D*
Did you hear the old gospel choir when they came to carry you over?
                  F#m           E          D*
Did you hear your favorite song   one last time?

      F#m                             C#m
And I wonder were you scared when the metal hit the glass?
           F#m                                                     D*
See, I was playing a show down the road when your spirit left your body.
         F#m                            C#m
And they told me on the front lawn. I'm sorry I couldn't go,
      F#m                                                    D*
But I still know the song and the words and her name and the reasons.

          F#m            D5               A         E
    And I know 'cause we were kids and we   used to hang
          F#m            D5               A         E
	I know 'cause we were kids and we   used to hang

                 A                           D*
Did you hear the '59 Sound coming through on grandmother's radio?
                 F#m             E                 D*
Did you hear the rattling chains   in the hospital walls?
                 A                                  D*

Sorry, actually F# and C# were "f#" and "c#" because these are minor chords of course.
